New Book Review — Read “The Crucible of Empire,” as it’s Outstanding.

with 2 comments

Folks, I just wrote a review at the “sister site” Shiny Book Reviews for Eric Flint and K.D. Wentworth’s excellent The Crucible of Empire.  I had previously reviewed it at Amazon.com but I wasn’t comfortable with my review there, partly due to space limitations.  At Shiny Book Reviews that isn’t as much of a concern; I now feel comfortable with my review of The Crucible of Empire and hope you all will read it.

Here’s the link:

But to sum up: if you love books that make you think along with appreciating the rousing space-battle action, you will love The Crucible of Empire.  Can’t praise it highly enough.

  1. I don’t see what there is to be uncomfortable with. I mean, you should have seen my review of some books up on Amazon. One time I was medicated and reviewed the wrong book.

    • OMG!

      Well, Jason, I just thought I could do better. I put “taif” for the Krants rather than “kochan,” and that was wrong; I also, because of space limitations, couldn’t really get into how I felt about the issue of the Lleix to the degree I did in the new review. I’m just much happier with the new review because I got more time to discuss what I liked about this book. (The only thing I disliked is that I wanted it to be longer. I didn’t say that in my new review; did say it in the old one.)
